Police dog sniffs out suspected burglar
Man broke into car, house in Luling, police say
According to St. Charles Parish Sheriff Greg Champagne, at 2:30 a.m. deputies responded to a car break-in in Coronado Park. The resident whose car was burglarized told police that he saw a white male flee from his car and jump into a Ford Taurus.
Shortly after, deputies received a call from a senior citizen on Barton Avenue who awoke to find a white male in her house. When the senior woke up, the burglar fled the home.
Champagne said deputies used a K-9 to establish a trail from the rear door of the senior’s home to the residence of Joshua Bychurch, who lives a few houses down.
"Bychurch was arrested after being positively identified," Champagne said. "A search warrant yielded property stolen earlier from the Coronado Park break-in."
Bychurch has been charged with simple burglary, the simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling, burglary of a moveable and two counts of theft under $500.
This wasn’t the first time that the K-9 and his handler helped crack a case, Champagne said. The duo recently assisted State Police in sniffing out several pounds of marijuana and a semi-automatic firearm from a drug trafficker passing through the parish on I-310.
